High-Performance Domain-Specific Languages using Delite


This tutorial is an introduction to developing domain specific languages (DSLs) for productivity and performance using Delite. Delite is a Scala infrastructure that simplifies the process of implementing DSLs for parallel computation. The goal of this tutorial is to equip attendees with the knowledge and tools to develop DSLs that can dramatically improve the experience of using high performance computation in important scientific and engineering domains. In the first half of the day we will focus on example DSLs that provide both high-productivity and performance. In the second half of the day we will focus on understanding the infrastructure for implementing DSLs in Scala and developing techniques for defining good DSLs.

The graph manipulation language Green-Marl is one of the subjects of this tutorial.
